of the things that bill moi moyers says it's not like corporations like the n.f.l. in this case, it's not like they are making phone calls to people saying don't talk about it. back down, you know, that kind of expressit pressure. it's more like the bill moyers talks about the abstract parameters around journalists where they sense where the boundaries are supposed to be for respectable discourse. you don't need that kind of crack of the whip. it's internalized by the journalists, themselves. i'm sorry. go ahead. >> i was going to say, when i was looking forward to talking about this and i am glad you are here, when i looked and saw bob costas had given this follow-up, the second interview, i was disappointed because i have been in that situation never with this high a profile, myself before you say something, and, you know, you have got to stick to your -- well, i started to say -- >> i hear you. >> bill: you have to stand up and not back down. right? i think people respect you for more that. >> zirin: i agree. >> to listen before you critique. i watched the
ago between bill moyers and a former justice talking about the constitution. this question goes to what is at the heart of constitutionalism and the rule of law. in the course of that conversation, after a long discussion about constitutionalism, black man turns to moyers and says it is really the preamble that breathes life into the constitution. i wonder where it -- whether that is a point of view that you hold and whether you think it has relevance. >> the preamble, we, the people of the united states. i used to be able to quote it. i do not think i can now. the preamble is important. we, the people. but it is not the only thing. i had a very interesting conversation in china. i have gone there twice. the first time was a few years ago. i went to beijing and then we went to shanghai. in shanghai, whereas to meet with a group of businessmen. these businessmen had all been involved in the dot.coms and had lost a lot of money. most of them had made a lot back. i was fascinated. one of them said, i prefer the cultural revolution. then you knew the government was the enemy. now yo
? >> actually after starting several software companies, i was watching a pbs program by bill moyer in 2004 and i was shocked to realize that 80% of electronics are illegally dumped in the developing country. and so i spent a couple years traveling around the world, looking at the different system, talking to officials and european union, in the u.s., as well as look at some of the facilities and i found this is after afterthought. that's why i started greenadvise. >> arthel: which is a great idea. what is it that you do to get rid of the dangerous elements of these products that would possibly endanger those children in those countries you're talking about? what do you do? >> one of the major things about greencitizen is that we provide education to the consumer and business because most people don't understand 80% of electronics are dumped. what we do is make it convenient to recycle with us and then we track all the items down to the brand name serial i.d. of the device and then we make sure that the electronic items that -- from the manufacturer are taken apart within 150 miles of our h
